A Bunch of Nice Guys

Here is a very busy Guy Motors Sales and Service depot in deepest Yorkshire.

Hopefully this will encourage some healthy discussions on the superb ranges of Guy Vixen and Guy Warrior vehicle made in the 195s and 1960s.

Dave--Very nicely done, and a wonderful mix of vintage Guy's along with sundry other Dinky's. A nice scene and well done. You are right, this gives us an opportunity to discuss the Guy range, and the wonderful models in it. I am in a hurry right now, so will have to address that later.......thanks again for the very nice scene!

Here is a 431 Guy Warrior which ran in the Dinky catalogues from 1958 to 1964.

I never owned one of these as a youngster and I really love this vehicle, I have the snowplough version but whilst it is absolutely fabulous the blade masks the front of the vehicle.

That' s a very busy road and the access is precariously close to the zebra crossing, expect a Daimler ambulance along any minute ! I like the chap in the period sheepskin jacket, must be in vehicle sales.

Hi All,
Here's the Warrior wagon in it's alternative finish......

These were Supertoys too....

Did they use leftover 920 Chassis' with different hubs I wonder?

This is one of the rarest Guy Trucks, they did indeed use 920 chassis for this.

The late Peter Golden who develped this site has an article about this vehicle elsewhere on the site.

A Bunch of Different Guys:

Differences in towing hooks, spare wheel fixings, rear axle fixings, hubs, axle ends, brand names, 400, 500 or 900 series catalogue numbers and front number plate supports.
